Brainerd Market At Grace Episcopal Plans Special Event Dec. 14

Friday, December 06, 2013
Join us this Saturday at the Brainerd Market at Grace Episcopal Church, 20 Belvoir Ave. Open every Saturday 10-12, the Market seeks to provide the highest quality products to the Brainerd area and is committed to ensuring that those products are produced in a manner that is, not only less harmful, but beneficial to the environment and community. All of our farmers and artisans come from less than 100 miles away and bring their fresh produce, soaps, cookies, cut flowers, pies, BBQ, empanadas, local eggs, dog treats and more.
Every month, in cooperation with Gaining Ground, we highlight a star product throughout the season. As an added treat, each week Bill Boren does a cooking demonstration with the star product complete with free samples. For details about each farm's weekly bounty, like us on Facebook or subscribe to the weekly newsletter (send an email to to be added).
